In my opinion, this is the best division in football, the past two NFC winners have come from this division, the Seahawks have been contenders ever since their 2014 Super Bowl campaign and the Cardinals made a big splash in free agency by signing stud wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. I expect the Forty-Niners to win this division once again, with their stellar defense and strong run game, but it won’t be easy fending off Russel Wilson and the Seahawks. If Pete Carroll will finally let Russ loose, I can see them winning the division, but he simply won’t. Chris Carson will have another solid season, but look for DK Metcalf to become an even larger part of the offense after a great rookie campaign. Everyone seemed to forget about the Rams as they did not live up to their expectations after their 2019 Super Bowl appearance, but as long as Sean Mcvay is coaching, they can beat anyone. The loss of Todd Gurley may hurt at the start of the season, but second round draft pick Cam Akers has some serious big play ability and can make some noise in his rookie year. The Cardinals will make a big improvement in Kyler and Kliff’s second year, benefiting from an easy schedule, but a weak offensive line will hold them back. Their defense is far from perfect as well, but will improve because of first round draft pick, Isaiah Simmons.
One of the weaker divisions in the league, but has a lot of potential if the Cowboys can finally utilize their talent and if the Eagles can actually stay healthy. I’m not a huge fan of the Mike Mccarthy hire, but it is still an upgrade from Jason Garrett, who was really Jerry Jones’ puppet. Dak slander is at an all time high, but he is still amongst the league’s elite, and the addition of Ceedee Lamb will only make life easier for him, their schedule is incredibly easy, and their defense is very talented, led by linebackers Leighton Vander-Esch and Jaylon Smith. The Eagles picked Jalen Reagor with their first round pick and acquired deep threat Marquise Goodwin to add some much needed depth to their receiving core. Miles Sanders is set for a breakout year after the departure of Jordan Howard and running behind one of the best offensive lines in football. The talent is there, they just need to stay healthy. Their schedule is not very favorable, but I would not be surprised to see them in the playoffs. The Giants could make some noise this year. Daniel Jones is looking to build off a very solid rookie season and Saquon Barkley looks to bounce back after an injury riddled 2019 season. Their receiving core is more than solid, led by tight end Evan Engram and Golden Tate, but look for Darius Slayton to have a breakout year and Sterling Shepard to be consistent as always. I’m not a huge fan of the Joe Judge hire, but I can still see this team winning some games. As for the Washington Football team, there isn’t much to say. Alex Smith cracking the roster after almost losing his leg is pretty awesome, but this team is bad.
